Yo-Yo Skills with Rob Martinez
I was so excited to have Rob teach me an FWB. Rob and I worked at our first corporate america job out of college together in SF. It was quite possibly the worst job ever especially when seated near the water cooler during the month of March when all it did was rain and everyone felt the need to discuss the rain at the water cooler, everyday. But I digress.
Rob has since moved to many places and is now living in Nebraska. I, of course, harassed Rob to teach me something for FWB when he was visiting SF for the weekend. He was hesitant but came out on top highlighting one of his many skills that I definitely did not know he had. He’s really good with a Yo-Yo. As most of you know, my hand eye coordination and fine motor skills are not my strengths so I was excited/hesitant to take on the old school Yo-Yo. I grew up with Yo-Yos but never really mastered it and soon switched over to the ever popular Yo Yo Ball in ’92. As someone on youtube once put it, it’s the yo-yo for kids who suck at real yo-yos. And how I remember the pain of losing control of the Yo-Yo Ball and having it slam into my front teeth……Hey Man It’s a Yo-Yo Ball!
Thanks Rob for playing along. Great reunion and I hope it’s not another 4 years until our next one!
